The official Pokémon website has announced that Gigantamax versions of Charizard, Garbodor, Copperajah and Duraludon will appear more frequently in Max Raid Battles until April 27th, 2020, at 4:59 p.m. PDT in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.

Gigantamax Charizard, Garbodor, Copperajah, and Duraludon Appear in Max Raid Battles

Journey into the Wild Area to catch these powerful arriving Pokémon.

Get ready for a Gigantamax take-over in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, as Gigantamax versions of Charizard, Garbodor, Copperajah, and Duraludon will appear more frequently in Max Raid Battles until April 27, 2020, at 4:59 p.m. PDT. Head into the Wild Area and begin your search for these elusive Gigantamax Pokémon.

To challenge these Pokémon in a Max Raid Battle, you'll need to connect your Nintendo Switch system to the internet. Then, whenever you see a pillar of light shining from a Pokémon Den in the Wild Area, you can walk up to the Pokémon Den and interact with it to start a Max Raid Battle with a Dynamax Pokémon. While Gigantamax Pokémon are appearing more frequently in Max Raid Battles, you'll sometimes encounter one of them instead of a Dynamax Pokémon. Outside of these special time periods, encountering a Gigantamax Pokémon is extremely rare.

NEW POKÉMON G-MAX MOVES AND MORE UNVEILED

BELLEVUE, WA—March 26, 2020—Today, The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo revealed new details for the Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass and Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass, including G-Max Moves that only Evolutions of the first-partner Pokémon in the Galar region—Rillaboom, Cinderace, and Inteleon—can use. Trainers can also look forward to new League Card designs and an early-purchase bonus.

Gigantamax Discoveries
In The Isle of Armor (Expansion Pass part one), Trainers will be able to help some of the Pokémon traveling with them gain the ability to Gigantamax. This led to the discovery of the Gigantamax forms for Rillaboom, Cinderace, and Inteleon. The G-Max Moves that these Gigantamax Pokémon can perform are tremendously powerful, packing an even greater punch than normal Max Moves or G-Max Moves. They also all ignore the effects of the target’s Ability!

Gigantamax Rillaboom
Grass-type attacks used by Gigantamax Rillaboom will change to G-Max Drum Solo. With this move, Rillaboom strikes up a beat with the sticks on its hands and elegantly controls tree roots with its spectacular drumming skill. It will then make these tree roots erupt from beneath the opponent, dealing massive damage.

pic

Gigantamax Cinderace
Fire-type attacks used by Gigantamax Cinderace will change to G-Max Fireball. With this powerful move, Cinderace will use its powerful legs to kick a gigantic fireball at the opponent, causing an explosion when it hits.

pic

Gigantamax Inteleon
Water-type attacks used by Gigantamax Inteleon will change to G-Max Hydrosnipe. With this move, Inteleon will take aim from the top of its towering tail, gathering water at its fingertip before blasting it at the opponent. The water is launched with such force and speed that it causes a huge explosion when it hits and packs a greater punch than other Max Moves.

New League Card Designs and Early-Purchase Bonus

Pokémon Trainers in the Galar region make in-game League Cards to introduce themselves. As Trainers progress in their adventure in The Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra, backgrounds, effects, and frames that were not available in the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield games will be added. Players can also change their League Card using Rotomi’s Card Maker feature and use these new designs, outfits, and hair styles to create their unique League Card.

Trainers who purchase either the Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass or the Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass soon after the launch of The Isle of Armor expansion (or players who have already prepurchased it) will be able to receive Leon’s cap and tights as an early-purchase in-game bonus. Players will be able to receive these items after the release of The Isle of Armor (by the end of June 2020) until 7:59 a.m. PDT on Monday, August 31, 2020.

The Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass and the Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass, new downloadable content for the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield video games, will contain The Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra expansions, two separate adventures that will enable fans to meet new characters, catch newly discovered Pokémon, and explore new areas in the Galar region. The Isle of Armor is scheduled to be released by the end of June 2020, and The Crown Tundra in the fall of 2020.

The official Pokémon website has announced that Galarian Rapidash, Galarian Darumaka, Mandibuzz, Sirfetch’d, and more version-exclusive Pokémon might appear in Max Raid Battles from Wednesday, March 18th, 2020, at 5:00 p.m. PDT until Wednesday, March 25th, 2020, at 4:59 p.m. PDT in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.

Galarian Rapidash, Galarian Darumaka, Mandibuzz, Sirfetch’d, and more version-exclusive Pokémon might appear in Max Raid Battles

Take this opportunity to catch Pokémon that don’t normally appear in the wild in your game version, as well as other Pokémon that may be hard to find.

From Wednesday, March 18, 2020, at 5:00 p.m. PDT until Wednesday, March 25, 2020, at 4:59 p.m. PDT, Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield players may encounter some Pokémon that may be hard to find in Max Raid Battles. All players may encounter Dynamax Escavalier, Accelgor, and Pincurchin more frequently in Max Raid Battles. Plus, Pokémon Sword players might encounter Dynamax Galarian Rapidash, Galarian Corsola, Mandibuzz, Oranguru, and female Indeedee. While Pokémon Shield players might encounter Dynamax Galarian Darumaka, Braviary, Passimian, Sirfetch'd, and male Indeedee instead. These Pokémon normally do not appear in these game versions, so it's a great opportunity to work toward completing your Galar Pokédex.

To challenge these Pokémon in a Max Raid Battle, you'll need to connect your Nintendo Switch™ system to the internet. Then, whenever you see a pillar of light shining from a Pokémon Den in the Wild Area, you can walk up to the Pokémon Den and interact with it to start a Max Raid Battle with a Dynamax Pokémon. In extremely rare cases, a Gigantamax Pokémon can appear instead of a Dynamax Pokémon.
